Icon Airmada Hoodoo Helmet
Im new to riding and bought this helmet to start wearing once I get a bike. I wanted it for the graphics to be honest the safety value seemed pretty high and overall its a good looking helmet. Air flow is nice at higher speeds would recommend cracking the visor up slightly to get more. Living in florida full face is always hot. I bought the glory edition and must say it was a great decision. While I love this helmet I would recommend someone new to riding to buy something like hjc for the weight. Icon airmadas are heavier as ive talked to other riders who agree with me. Once you wear it a few times the weight lessons and you become use to it. Overall id give it a 10 for looks and quality there isnt a stitch out of place.

Worst Icon Yet
I have been happy with the last two generations of Icon helmets and ASSumed that this would be an improvement over the last, well I was wrong.
Fit is extremely tight getting on and off and while you would think this would lessen noise, it doesn't.
Shield whistles, it's not a tight seal.
Ear pockets are so small that my very thin scala rider speakers touch my ears, which do not fit into the ear pockets and are normally scrunched.
And the biggest complaint, there is no thought, not even a consideration towards a glasses slot. You will destroy your glasses trying to get them behind your ears with this helmet.
I wouldn't even sell this secondhand to someone, it would be cruel.

After 2 weeks of use
I've been using this helmet every day for my 50 mile commute for two weeks. 50% of this has been in rain. The helmet is exactly what I was expecting and did not let me down. Airflow is pretty good, fit is leaning towards a race fit. Visor was not as complicated to use as other reviews have mentioned. Over all great product from Icon.

Thought it was too small at first...
The helmet arrived in exceptional packaging. When I first tried to put it on, I thought "NO WAY" was this going to fit on my head. Well, push it down hard and your head will pop in. I was wearing an HJC Medium for two seasons, and I ordered this in a medium, after measuring my head. I realized that this helmet was superior in protection to the HJC, once I got it on. I feel like I finally have a proper fitting helmet, even though the initial putting it on/taking it off was TIGHT. But once its on, it fits nice and snug and I feel like it will actually protect my head. I love the styling. There are plenty of vents. I just wish it had a quick release, like the HJC.

this is my first full face, and I'm super happy with it. it vents great and is a no frills lid. like others have said it does have a tight opening but like the cheek pads the neck roll loosens up with use. I highly recommend this lid as I use it as a daily commuter in the Deep South.

I've had several icon helmets before mostly alliance line. The airmada has a "tailored" fit to me and is much lighter due to the shell size matching your size fit. Super nice, great venting for an economically priced helmet!!

So far I'm very happy with this helmet! Fit, styling and features are all top notch for a mid-priced entry helmet.
I have a long oval head and right out of the box this helmet was a sigh of relief for me! Snug all the way around and on the money sizing, the only wiggle is around my cheeks. But with adjustable padding that's an issue that should be easy to solve.
Venting is great, and even with all of the front vents closed I can feel the Venturi effect drawing air off the back of my head! Very nice for when I'm trying to reduce noise (wind noise is noticeably less with vents closed) at freeway speed. Wind noise is noticeable, but so much less than the last helmets I've had that I consider it a huge improvement.
Really enjoying not having starbursts in my view whenever I ride at night (which is often), field of view is pretty wide, I barely see the sides on peripheral head checks.
All in all a great find, I'm very happy with this so far.
